AMD has always been working on producing CPUs that could overperform Intel processors on any given day. With the launch of some powerful chipsets, the company has slowly been acquiring a large amount of market share from Intel and has been focusing more especially on gamers and overclocking enthusiasts. The company recently launched the Ryzen 5000 series desktop CPUs this week, which was immediately sold out on all the major retailers.
Two of the major CPUs to go out of stock in the series are Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 9 5950X. When compared to Intel’s Core i9-10900K, both the processors provided a very strong performance on a single core. When checked on multiple cores, the processors even provided much faster performance and productivity. As per the company, the processors are great for people who like to overclock their CPU for extra performance. In the same effort, the popular overclocker HiCookie managed to overclock Ryzen 9 5950X to 6.362 GHz on all 16 cores while using liquid nitrogen cooling.
The same was accomplished using the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master motherboard and 16 GB of Corsair DDR4 memory. The overclocking done through this method went stable and was able to score 15,517 points on the Cinebench R20 run, which makes the results very impressive as the one provided by AMD scored around 10,157 points. It is currently the highest verified result for an AMD CPU and seems like it is really going to be a great CPU for people who overstress their system for more performance.
